Before today I had never eaten a fresh fig. I’d been wanting to try one for a long time (since I figured Fig Newtons probably didn’t do them justice), but whenever I found them for sale they were all smooshy and rotten. Finally I found some ripe figs to try. It turns out that after all that waiting… I don’t really like them that much. Ha! Don’t get me wrong, they are all right, but figs are no pomegranates (my favorite fruit of all time). It’s possible that I set my expectations too high, but at least they’re cute! Have you ever had a fig?
